Voyager sticky first key

Post by voyager3 » Sat Feb 27, 2021 1:30 pm

Does anyone else's Voyager have a sticky first key? The first key on my Voyager feels different than the rest of the keys. When you press the first key you can feel and hear like something sticks then gets unstuck. Serial number 2401.

Hi!

I've had the opportunity to unmount a Voyager keybed lately. The (10) screws that hold it on the synth bottom plate can be tighten with the keybed 1-2mm more on the left or the right. The first time I put the screws back, I had a squeaky first key. I untightened/retightened maintaining the keybed more on the right: it went well.
No need to completely remove the scews.

Hope this helps!
